DumpIT - Adding / Ignoring fields

Default settings for DumpIT, migrates data for all the creatable fields of an object. For example, if the build.properties file ONLY mentions account as:

process.objects=Account
This migrates all creatable fields for "Account" object. There ar scenarios where you want to migrate data for certain specific fields or ignore certain fields, to do so you can use these given properties in the build properties file.

Ignoring field:

To avoid migrating a certain set of fields, add the below-given property:

Account.ignorefields=Industry,OwnerId
This will migrate all the Account creatable fields except the ones mentioned in the above statement.

Selective fields:

To migrate data for only selective fields, add the below-given property:

Account.fields = Name,BillingAddress,RecordTypeId
In this scenario, only the fields mentioned in the above statement will be migrated, make sure you select all the required fields for that object.

Salesforce CPQ - Automatically add a Product to a Quote

Recently I have seen a question popping up on communities that how can we add a product dynamically to a quote (not within the bundle), based on a condition. I'll explain a few simple use cases below.

These use cases refer to adding a product on a Quote Line Editor and the CPQ version installed is 214.6

Add a "Warranty" Product if "Macbook Pro" is added to the Quote. While I select "Macbook Pro" to add in my Quote, it should also add the "Warranty" product automatically to my Quote.

1. Product Rule: Create a Product Rule of type Selection and scope equals Quote. 

Type: SelectionActive: checkedConditions Met: AllScope: QuoteEvaluation Event: Always 2. Error Condition: Add an error condition to the Product Rule. This product rule will run if this error condition returns true. As per the use case, it should run if there is a product added to the Quote with a Product code as "MBPRO"

I am glad to share a tool I developed which may save you a lot of time. DumpIT comes as an executable jar file which helps to clone data from one Salesforce Org to another. Recently Salesforce released a feature to clone a Sandbox but it has its own limitations and cannot always be used.

What are the existing options in the market?Few of the existing options suggested by different people were:
